The absolute best form of sausage ever created by man. If you ever have any doubts in your life, eat some smoked kielbasa and watch all your troubles melt away like fat dripping off these babies and into the grill fire. They're best enjoyed prepared in a backyard over an open flame by your grandfather, whilst enjoying a Faygo or a Stroh’s.
Leading Detroit’s food revolution was this fermented delight, which hit stands at local markets around 2006. They are tangy, fancy, and entirely addictive, and have spread to every corner of the United States, but remain at heart Pure Michigan™.
Being a major port in the Great Lakes waterways, Detroit is of course home to many ways of preparing freshwater fish. The lake perch is a small fish and a common catch on the Great Lakes, and is known for its mild flavor. Whether pan sautéed or fried up as the main component of fish & chips, there's no wrong way to eat perch, and you should do it at least once if you want to consider yourself a Detroiter.
